"I value my friendship with Noel because he is one of the only people who went through what I did in the nineties."

Noel previously described the end of his long fight, in an interview with The Sunday Times.
He said: & # 39; We were in a nightclub. I had not talked to him for years, but I had not spit on him for years either.
"I passed him in the hall, we said," let's go to the bar for a beer. "
